Tribute to the Runners of the Boston Marathon 2013

Found the actual photo with the poem from last year. I wrote this on the day of the Boston Marathon Bombing while the perpetrators were as yet unknown and the magnitude of the tragedy was still unfolding. Being so far from the situation, this is how I channeled my grief and concern to the people of Boston and to the participants in the marathon. That day we all ran the race with them. Our love saw each one of them across the line in spirit if not in body. Love finished the race that day. Hatred did not end it then and it does not stop us now. We are Boston Strong. We are American Strong. We are humanity strong.
